senators are joining a republican-led effort to repeal a new medical tax tied to president obama's health care overhaul that they all voted for. but now they say it could have a devastating impact. it's called the medical device tax, and starting next year it will impose a 2.3% tax on all medical devices. it's supposed to bring in nearly $29 billion over the next ten years which, according to the medical industry, will in turn force them to cut more than 40,000 jobs. stu varney is the anchor of varney and company on fox business network. hi, stu. >> how you doing? alisyn: i'm doing well. it's interesting that this group of democratic senators -- two very well known ones from minnesota, senator al franken and amy klobuchar -- are now asking for a delay on this tax. they actually want it repealed. >> yep. alisyn: where were they two years ago? >> that's a very good question. maybe they hadn't read it all in detail, because that tax was in there. three weeks to go before this tax is imposed, before costs are raised on granny's hip, before jobs are lost in the medical device industry, suddenl

large donors like corporations right after the election president obama has a new stance on corporations. interesting. let's take a look at google. now this is fascinating tax avoidance. you can name so many companies that do this. bloomberg wrote this story about google as an example of how they do this. google avoided $2 billion in worldwide income taxes by 2011 by shifting $9.8 billion in revenues to a bermuda shell company. they do things like the double irish and the dutch sandwich, which sounds like a different kind of sandwich to me because we're going to have to eat those taxes. if we lived in a real democracy do you think people would let corporations like google shift $9.8 million in taxes away from us or $2 billion in taxes all over the world away from themselves an on to us? that wouldn't happen in a democracy. but in our form of government the people who are served, the people who are represented are the one who is are the largest donors. if you look at how much google gave president obama as an example they gave $737,055. they were his third largest donor. weir

heard about the obama campaign communicating with folks with new technologies. there's a lot of segmentation. one of the reasons i did interviews in all the places i talk about is i speak a neutral spanish. you can't place my spanish geographically for a corky set of reasons allowing them to use me in a multitude of places. there's one place where i did one interview all fall, which was orlando. that has a large spanish language media. it's a puerto rican area, and you don't need someone with my skill set speaking to puerto ricans, but fellow port puerto ricans. that's true in other parts of the country. there's a much more deliberate effort this time to ensure in ads and media outreach, and just people to people outreach that you speak to and through folks through the same subgroup. >> and different issues as well? >> yeah. >> i mean, is information coming in a different way? >> issues, this time, at least in my experience, born out in the national exit polls, the issues latinos cared about this time were the issues, the mainstream, if you will, the national issues, the economy

fox news. he has a column every week -- now it doesn't say romney is going to win. it says obama is going to fail. i'm sure impeachment is not far around the corner. "wall street journal" was or at least used to be a serious paper. you don't have someone doing that who is then raising money from super pacs for billionaire and spending them in ways that are off the books that are not transparent. that is a racket. he uses wall street journal and to raise money for his own -- i'm sure he gets a lovely salary from american crossroads, too. so will bill kristol go after mourdock of which he is a contributor? i don't think so. a lot of these scams are ridiculous but dick morris is relatively small potatoes. he's so vulgar and so ridiculous and he doesn't hide it very well and he's so transparent. but what about all of the others and the big stuff? so i think kristol, yes, he's right, but is anything going to happen? >> and when you're talking about the big leagues -- >> yeah. >> thank you very much for coming here to talk about this. frank rich is writer at large for a new york magazine.
